FEC v. Jeffrey Bell


On April 14, 1980, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey issued a consent judgment agreed to by the Commission and defendant Jeffrey Bell. The Commission had filed suit on January 21, 1980, alleging that the defendant had violated 2 U.S.C. §441a(f) by accepting excessive contributions from his mother, Marjorie Bell, during his 1978 Senatorial campaign in New Jersey. Mr. Bell agreed to pay a civil penalty of $1,500 levied by the court.
